What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological disorder that affects a child’s movement, motor skills, and muscle tone. In most cases, cerebral palsy is caused by brain damage that develops while the baby is still in utero or during or shortly after birth.
Cerebral palsy is a congenital disorder, affecting around 500,000 in the U.S. There is currently no cure for cerebral, but there are numerous treatment options that can help babies and children live quality lives that turn into successful adult lives.
Unfortunately, cerebral palsy can lead a number of other medical conditions, depending on the severity of the disorder.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for a group of developmental disorders caused by damage to the brain that can happen before, during or shortly after birth.
It’s a non-progressive condition (which means that it doesn’t get worse in time) affecting movement, co-ordination, balance and posture. It can, therefore, affect a person’s gross motor ability, such as crawling, standing, walking and running; and fine motor ability, such as grasping, dressing, eating and writing. It may also affect vision, communication, learning and behaviour.
Symptoms will vary from person to person, depending on where the brain is damaged and to what extent.
Unfortunately, there is no cure, but treatments including surgery, medication and therapies can help to relieve the discomfort of tight muscles. Treatments can also manage the associated medical problems, such as epilepsy, hip dislocation and contractures.
Several complex factors can contribute to a baby experiencing brain damage and developing cerebral palsy. These include infection during the mother’s pregnancy, a difficult birth, premature birth and illness shortly after birth. Often the exact causes are unknown.

Mesothelioma Symptoms
One of the most frustrating aspects of mesothelioma is that the cancer can hide inside your body for decades without showing any kind of outward sign. For all intents and purposes you may appear to be healthy while actually harboring the condition, and as it invisibly grows and gains strength it becomes more and more difficult to treat.
The symptoms of this type of cancer are an important part of why mesothelioma is so difficult to treat. In order to have the best prognosis and for treatment to be successful, it is important that people at risk for mesothelioma know the signs and symptoms and carefully watch for them. Don’t let the symptoms be mistaken or anything else and if you feel your doctor isn’t taking your symptoms or concerns seriously enough, it may be time to seek a second opinion.

Drug Addiction - Condition and Symptoms
Although most Drug Addiction starts with casual or social use of a drug, some people become addicted to a drug originally prescribed by a physician. A common misconception is that Drug Addiction is solely due to use of illegal substances, but that is not always the case. Alcohol is the drug most abused, and it is legal. Nicotine (cigarettes) and prescription drugs are other examples. Even caffeine is a drug. Do you have to have that coffee in the morning to avoid a headache? You may have a caffeine addiction. Obviously, some drugs cause a stronger addiction than others. Further, some drugs cause addiction over a long period of time, while others cause addiction remarkably quickly.
